> The Nano tech Future: A Conversation with Mihail Roco
> Friday, November 9 2007 – 12:30 – 1:30 P.M.
> Woodrow Wilson Center – sponsored by the Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies
> It is hard to discuss the future of nanotechnology without talking about or with Mike Roco, the key architect of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI)-America’s $8 billion investment in the science and engineering research expected to revolutionize technology and industry.
> Nanotechnology refers to the emerging science of manufacturing materials that are measured in nanometers, usually at the 1-100 nanometers scale. The head of a pin is 1 million nanometers wide. By 2014, Lux Research estimates that $2.6 trillion in manufactured goods will incorporate nanotechnology, or about 15 percent of global output.
> What was Dr. Roco’s vision in 2000 at the start of the NNI? What are his expectations for nanotechnology’s many promises-in medicine, sustainable energy, and electronics? What challenges does nanotechnology pose for the future, particularly as it reaches toward third and fourth generation development-in guided molecular assembly, 3D networking, robotics, supra-molecules, molecules by design, and evolutionary systems? Robert Service, nanotechnology reporter at Science magazine, will interview Dr. Roco about these topics and more.
> speaker: Dr. Mihail Roco, Senior Advisor for Nanotechnology, National Science Foundation
> interviewer: Robert F. Service, Correspondent, Science
> moderator: David Rejeski, Director, Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies
